I started a small investigation about this quite recent meteorite:
Its status is "undocumented". What dokuments/set of information makes a meteorite "official" in databases?
During the past 16 years it received very little attention and publicity even in the local scientific media.
The story of the fall raises a lot of questions (melting things after hours, undocumented crater, specialists forgot to take photos, etc). Please read:
Another point is the strong weathering on the pictures:
Based on my very little knowledge it does seem to be an iron
meteorite but does NOT seem to be a fresh fall.
I became very interested in the true story of this fall, but before any final conclusion I decided to ask this community. What is your opinion?
